Tuesday March 24th
As I sit here at my desk hitting the Play arrow on the ZFX over and over, I think to myself “just shoot me”… There have been some great guesses, but I just don’t think this is going to get solved without a clue. They have said it’s something common, something even kids know. Okay, so it’s NOT a vcr! Then WHAT THE HELL IS IT?! If anyone out there knows it, why hasn’t it been guessed yet?! It would be REALLY nice if Z95.3 did THIS:
– sell raffle tickets for $5. The money they get for selling the raffle tickets gets added to the pot or given to charity (let’s be honest, at this point there would probably be about 500 people who would buy one, so it might be a few thousand dollars). At 8am they pick out a raffle ticket and CALL that person. They get to give their guess. If it’s wrong, another raffle ticket is chosen. They continue until ONE of the people they call actually knows the answer. If they called people during songs, they might get 50 to 60 guesses in a day. All those smart-asses out there could prove that they know it! Imagine the bragging rights (and a nice chunk of change!!!)
I only suggest this out of pure frustration. You wouldn’t buy a raffle ticket unless you had a pretty good guess, right? I wouldn’t buy one! Well, actually, for $5 I probably would… LOL! Somehow, I think this is against the general rules for contests, you probably need a different licence for raffles… anyway, it’s fun to fantasize! *hits play* (shump scrape screech – what is that mechanical HUM in the background?!?!)
Another strange thing happened over at Newcap today – they made Larry’s Mix Tape ridiculously easy! What’s going on here??? Anyone over the age of 30 (okay, maybe 40) knows those songs inside and out. And what’s with putting 2 songs by the same artist in there?? Somebody’s winning $400 at 8am…
JRFM announced a fun new contest but it doesn’t start until next week. It’s akin to Larry’s Mix Tape – there will be 5 song snippets and you have to name them IN ORDER. The jackpot will go up by $200 after each wrong guess. I don’t know if the songs will be warped like Larry’s, but I’m sure it will be tough. I love country, so I look forward to this contest. I don’t, however, look forward to being glued to a radio at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7, and having to pay attention to 3 (sometimes 5) stations at once. CFOX Payroll, Peak’s contest, this one, ZFX, LG guesses, Jack names – ooooh, I’m going to need some help!!!
The post with the overview of the major contests is HERE. It has more details than this schedule.
The Breakfast Television theme for the Disney trip this week is “wild side”. Read more about that prize HERE. The trip is on April 17th.
CTV has a car to win – an electric one!!! You may have to go to the Auto Show to win it though. Watch at 6:20, 7:20, and 8:20 for the codeword and your chance to win.
Peak’s contest started yesterday, the post with the details is HERE. I have some issues with this one, which I mentioned in the overview. Remember, you only get 10 minutes to call them back! If you want me to call you if your name is said, send me your info to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m already annoyed with this one – first I mixed up the names of the nominator and nominee, then the DJ messed up the names. I remember now why I wasn’t thrilled to hear the return of this one…
Grab a seat with Jack’s text-in contest at 8, 12, and 4. If you’re just joining us now, read last week’s overview to get the important details for this one.
